Basic information

The journal Ciência Animal Brasileira (Brazilian Animal Science) comes from the great aspiration of Veterinary and Animal Science School of Universidade Federal de Goiás (UFG) to assure fast and high-quality publication of the papers produced in the Graduation Programs, both Lato and Stricto Sensu, in such areas. As the teaching and research staff is qualified and presents great scientific production, the journal project was developed and it was subsequently separated from the Anais das Escolas de Agronomia e Veterinária (Annals of the Agronomy and Veterinary School) of the same University, becoming an independent publication. The journal has been published entirely online on the journals website of UFG, based on SEER system from IBICT, since the year of 2006, and the paperback printing was interrupted in 2010, being carried out only in specific cases due to any particular requirement of the citation indeces. The electronic version can be found at, where all volumes and issues are available for free access and printing. The editorial staff has been working to increase the number of papers published in English aiming at turning this journal into a bilingual publication within the next years. The Editorial Board has also increased with the joining of new members from different institutions in order to increment its technical-scientific quality. Currently, we are changing the bibliographic referencing rules to facilitate international publicizing. Furthermore, the search for new indexation basis is a permanent objective of this journal.

Its abbreviated title is Ciênc. anim. bras., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
